At the city of Branson’s Board of Alderman meeting, a resolution was heard that could raise your monthly utility bill.

The resolution was read and established what the rates would be.

If approved, the ordinance would add a 2% increase in water rates, a 5% increase in sewer rates and would go into effect in January.

The money made from the increase will account for things like inflation and to fund operations for the city’s water treatment and distribution systems, sewer treatment and collection systems, as well as upkeep for equipment.

The Board of Alderman was supposed to have a public hearing and a first reading of the bill Tuesday but that has been re-scheduled for November 12 due to an issue on getting the Public Hearing Notice posted.
